We enjoyed our vacation in Iceland and this house was a perfect fit for our family. Great location if you would like to visit Golden Circle. House is clean, has fully functional kitchen. And the best part was communication with Solveig - property owner. She was very helpful.
Terrific Golden Circle option for family
Reykholt was a perfect home base for our family of five to tour the Golden Circle and beyond. We all enjoyed space to ourselves and the kids especially looked forward to a hot tub at the end of the day’s adventure. All details were handled well by the property manager and we would highly recommend this location to families.
Beautiful, modern home with traditional touches. Perfect location in the Golden Circle. Open and airy, lots of light, but dark enough to sleep with the window treatments. The homeowner was very quick to respond when I had questions. I can’t say enough good things about this experience. Everything we needed to cook was there. It was a really lovely experience! We hope to come back!! Thank you!
Luxurious home in a perfect location
Entering this house took our breath away! On the outside, it is just another ranch-style house. But, on the inside, you are in the lap of luxury - hardwood floors, beautiful carpets, classic wood tables and chairs, comfortable sofas that you can just sink into. And, wonderful beds! And, then there was the sauna and hot tub! Everything was just perfect. We stayed for three nights, and wish we could have stayed forever.
The location is great, as well. The house is just off the main road, 20 minutes from Geysir and 30 minutes from Gullfoss, and yet it is in another world entirely.
If you are doing the "Golden Circle," I would encourage you to spend some time in this legendary part of Iceland (read "Iceland's Bell by Halldor Laxness). And if you do, this house is the perfect place to stay.
We had a wonderful time, extremely nice and well-equipped house!
We have rented different houses in Iceland during the last six years, and this is by far our best experience. Thank you so much!
Beautiful home and great owner
The house was very clean and comfortable and is well furnished. The village is nice and quiet so good for families. And the town is convenient to the Golden Circle. And at the end of a day of sightseeing, we felt like we were coming home. A very warm and inviting house.
The Frioheimar restaurant nearby has the most amazing tomato soup. Part of the fun is that you are in their greenhouse.
The owners were very nice. We had a flat tire and they came to the house and escorted me to where I could get the tire repaired and talked to the technician on a Sunday morning. They were also extremely nice to open up their garage on their day off. We didn’t miss a beat.
We had a wonderful time in Iceland. It is a beautiful country. We miss it already.
Thank you for sharing your house with us.
Be sure to swing by Friðheimar for a unique culinary experience served in a Greenhouse. A few minutes walk from the property.
The Geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana is also a must. Fontana is located by a beautiful lake and you can enjoy spectacular views from the sauna and geothermal pools. The baths vary in depth and, size and temperature and the steam rooms have been built over natural hot springs that have been used for this purpose since 1929. Laugarvatn Fontana is only a 10 minute drive from the property.
